Michael B. Jordan has an upcoming movie called Creed, and it is not, as you might suspect, a biopic of the band creed starring Jordan as Scott Stapp. It’s actually a Rocky sequel about Rocky training the son of Apollo Creed (originally played by Carl Weathers). Jordan appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to talk about the movie and show a shot of him training. How did he get his buff boxer body? He did not punch sides of beef like Sylvester Stallone did in the original film, but he did chase chickens.
“I told ’em to get me the fattest, slowest, oldest chicken they could find because I would not be embarrassed onscreen.”
According to these Instagram photos, you could say the chicken method has worked well. Very, very well.
Let’s all round up some chickens and get ready for bikini season.
